“Monster Inside” – Art of Khaos

Another great tune from Art of Khaos is their shredding tornado “Monster Inside”.  Drawing from more of a Symphony X and Lamb of God vein this time, the tune still reminds me of Pantera in the grooves.  I even hear a bit of Megadeth in the harmonized guitar riffs.  Regardless of all the namedropping I can put into this post, the music is original and refreshing.  The lyricism in the guitar solo reflects a maturity that a lot of players don’t show; the guitarist clearly know to not beat us over the head with shredding all of the time–music is not just pyrotechnics.  At the same time, the guitars aren’t vanilla.  Congrats on another great, very metal, song!
